Welcome to Mulberry School
The Mulberry School is an independent, private, non-profit school that provides children with the opportunity to learn in an environment that values curiosity and natural development. We work to "nurture the innate love of learning" by teaching children how, as opposed to what, to learn.
Serving the Bloomington-Normal community since 1971, Mulberry School is a cooperative institution where parents have the opportunity to participate in nearly every aspect of the school. It is this support and input that allows us to provide a unique learning experience for our students.
New Homeschool Class Offerings
December 5, 2013
Mulberry School has openings for homeschool students in the Spring 2014 semester! The available classes are Art and the NEW Healthy Cooking Class.
Art Class will meet bi-monthly on Tuesdays beginning January 14. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders meet at 1:00-1:45 and Kindergarten meets at 2:00-2:45. Cost: $80.00 (8 sessions).
Mulberry School’s Art program is taught by an amazing art instructor named Bonnie. Ms. Bonnie joined the Mulberry team in 2002, after teaching art in the public schools for more than 20 years. While introducing different movements of art history, Ms. Bonnie inspires each student to explore his/her creative potential. Through her efforts, even a four year old attending Mulberry will recognize the artwork of Vincent van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, and Jackson Pollock.
Healthy Cooking Class will meet bi-monthy on Wednesdays beginning January 8. 1st, 2nd, 3rd, graders meet at 1:00-1:45 and Kindergarten meets at 2:00-2:45. Cost: $90.00 (9 sessions).
Join us for Healthy Cooking Class. Kids will participate in preparing and sampling a recipe and be hands-on using tools that are safe and perfectly sized for kids. Our recipes focus on fruits, veggies and beans and avoid most common allergens (if your child has a specific allergy, let us know and we can work with that as well). We also learn more about our “featured” healthy food through posters and coloring pages. Come on over to Mulberry School for a fun time in the kitchen! **Research shows that children who are actively involved in preparing healthy foods tend to choose those types of foods more often.
All fees and agreement/contract will be due on or before the first day of class.
Call the school at (309) 862-0510 to enroll.
Annual Friendship Feast
November 27, 2013
We all enjoyed the annual Mulberry School Friendship Feast today! Each class performed short songs and dances, followed by a delicious meal of turkey and noodles, salad, cornbread muffins, sweet potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce, fruit salad, apple cider, and pumpkin muffins for dessert. Yum! Thank you to our great teachers, parents, and other helpers who assisted in making this event happen.
We hope everyone has a very Happy Thanksgiving. We’ll see our children back at school on Monday!
